Down by Law (1986)
Roberto: It is a sad and beautiful world.
Zack: Yeah, it's a sad and beautiful world buddy.

Preston: Zack ! Hey man ! What the fuck ya doin' here in the garbage ?
Zack: [without looking at Preston] Just leave me alone, Preston. I'm in a bad mood.
Preston: Then I'm just the man you've been looking for. In fact, I've been looking for you.
Zack: That's a bad sign.
Preston: Now, Zack , baby ! I got somethin' real good for you. An hour's work for a whole lotta scratch.
Zack: I ain't interested.
Preston: Then you ARE in a bad mood. You won't even let me propose it to you ! Can you just listen to me for one minute, will ya ? One minute of your, uh... valuable time ?
Zack: [sighs in exasperation] Just fuck off, Preston.
Preston: [chuckles and acts like he's going to walk away from him, but then goes back to him] All I wanna do is pay you a grand, in exchange of a single hour of your very very valuable time. But this ain't no break in, no delivery of controlled substances, none of this stuff. It's just to drive a car, from one part of town to another, alone. That's it.
Zack: What kind of car will that be, Preston ?
Preston: That will be a very nice car. A very nice, very expensive imported car, which just happens to be in between owners at the present time.
Zack: [mutters to himself]
Preston: Look man, all you gotta do is drive the car across town, park it, leave it. I can pay half grand upfront, and the other half later. The whole thing's over in an hour! It's very safe, very clean, and believe me, i can get a million guys to do this for me.
Zack: Then why don't you do it yourself ?
Preston: I'm offerin' a grand so I don't have to answer stupid questions like that.
Zack: Well... I might consider the grand upfront... then I might think about it.
Preston: Jesus !
[a pause]
Preston: Zack... you are in a nasty mood. So just to cheer you up a little bit, I give you 750 upfront. OK ?
[Zack rises to leave him on the spot but he holds him back]
Preston: Alright, alright, Mr. All-Mighty-Hot-Shit. I'm gonna do you this favour.
[he gives Zack the keys of the car]
Zack: [impressed, but still muttering to himself] Oh man ! A Jaguar !
Preston: I'll give you the whole thing upfront
[he gives Zack the money]
Preston: Now you owe me.
[long pause]
Preston: Zack, you know you can buy yourself twenty girls for all of that ?

Jack: This is how you dressed before you were in the joint, right? Sort of garbage man on parade.
Zack: You, uh, plannin' on doin' a little squirrel huntin', Jack?
